TVD Ticket Giveaway: of Montreal at U Street Music Hall, 10/23 or 10/24

Just last week, we gave away a signed copy of of Montreal’s latest release, Lousy With Sylvianbriar, which you still have time to win. This time, we’re giving away a pair of tickets…

As mentioned in the vinyl giveaway, of Montreal is embarking on a fall tour to promote their twelfth album, which was released on October 8. The album is described by Rolling Stone as “the rebuilding of the group as a Seventies country-influenced garage band.” Also, being inspired by the works of the suicidal poet Sylvia Plath, Lousy With Sylvianbriar is said to have come from “a darker place,” according to songwriter and singer of the band, Kevin Barnes.

The Georgian band is kicking off their fall tour this Friday, October 18, with a show in their hometown of Athens. A few days later, of Montreal is playing not one, but two shows at the U Street Music Hall. We’re giving away a pair of tickets, and the winner can choose which show he or she would like to attend.

Last Thursday, of Montreal premiered the music video for “Fugitive Air” off of the new album. On the inspiration and shots in the video, the band says, “We wanted the video to feel like a frenetic road trip, unhinged by debauched influences.”

To win a pair of tickets to see of Montreal when they stop by U Street Music Hall on either Wednesday, October 23, or Thursday, October 24, leave a comment below naming your favorite poet. Mine would have to be the creepy and disturbed Edgar Allan Poe. 

A winner will be chosen at noon on Monday, October 21. Tickets are still available for both the Wednesday and Thursday shows.

    Carl Sandburg. He actually used to play guitar while reading his poetry, long before such things were popular.

    “Anonymous”, the most prolific poet of all time.  I believe this poet’s best-know work begins “There once was a man from Nantucket…”.

    I’d have to say Rumi. He’s wise, yet sensual. Old, yet modern. Creepy, yet comforting. You can’t go wrong.
